New Hempel coatings protect the “splash zone” of offshore structures

Hempel has launched two variations of a new coating specifically developed to protect splash-zone areas. The splash zone is that vulnerable area of an offshore structure that faces corrosion from the atmosphere and the sea. Because it is just above the waterline, it can also suffer from impact and abrasion. Hempadur Multi-strength 35480 and 35482 are two-component,

Technavio identifies drivers to forecast global wind turbine composite material market

Thermoset prepreg composite are widely used for the manufacture of wind turbine blades as these exhibit superior performance characteristics such as high strength-to-weight ratio and durability.

Sika Corp. intros Sikafast-3300 & 3500 series structural methyl methacrylate adhesives

SPIROL intros ArmorGalv, a 1,000+ hr corrosion resistant coating, for tubular products

SPIROL introduces ArmorGalv, a thermal zinc diffusion coating, as a standard finish option for its engineered fasteners.

Arkema presents its new generation of composites for the wind-power industry

Over one million tons of composites are used every year to manufacture wind-turbine blades. However, these blades made of thermoset composites (epoxy or polyester) are not easy to recycle at their end of life stage. To meet this challenge, Arkema has developed Elium, the first liquid thermoplastic resin using the same infusion process and equipment as thermoset

Wind turbine composites material market worth $12.17 billion by 2021

Blades account for the highest amount of composites consumption in their manufacturing.

Hempel simplifies offshore asset maintenance with new coating range

Two new coatings, Hempadur Quattro XO 17820 and 17870, will increase the service life and reduce on-station maintenance requirements of offshore assets such as wind turbine towers and ships.
